Hi there, I'm 19 year old, female, single..
I am a qualified swimming teacher and have had two Skype interviews with a new fitness company that is currently being set up and should be open in September.
The centre will be based in Jumeirah Beach area.

I haven't been told what my salary will be yet, that will be next time i speak with her.
However she has said that accommodation and transport isn't included.
She has said that my visa will be sorted by herself, I could be working 40-45 hours a week over 6 days. I'll get 21 days off a year and one trip home paid for..

What sort of salary should i expect or want to be able to live comfortably?

Many thanks

Guys,

Need your help urgently

I have declined the offer given to me by a Healthcare IT company in Dubai(As shown below).

They have replied back to me seeking my expectation.

Now here is the issue. This company does not divide the package as components

such as educational allowance, relocation allowance etc. All they have is 2 components ie Basic and House allowance. They said that what ever the amount is agreed upon will the divided into these 2 components and a formal offer will be prepared.

So my question is how much will be an ideal package in this case. Note that what ever the montly salary is, i need to cover up all my expense in that ex rent, education, utilities, airfare to hometown, transportation etc and yet should be able to save say 15K- 20K monthly.

What should i quote here. I have Close to 8 years of exp in Healthcare IT and married. Having a 10 months old kid. My wife wont be working. I am planning to rent a 2 BHK furnished apartment in or around Dubai Internet City (here is my office). I have also pasted below my previous posts for reference.

Also they have agreed to provide medical insurance for me and my family. So what all stuff get covered in the company provided insurance. Any thought?

Please Help.

As regards medical cover, you'll to ask for a copy of the policy. Every company as a different policy, and many have tiered policies, dependent on seniority. Sad but true.

Default Standard Secondment Packages to Dubai

I'm a 31 year old single male from Ireland and I have been offered a secondment to Dubai with my current employer. I will be having a discussion with our HR department shortly regarding the secondment package and I'm looking for some advice on what I should be negotiating for. I have been told that accommodation will be taken care of and international health insurance but what else should I be looking for. I am with the company for many years and I'm very happy with them but I just want to make sure I have a reasonable standard of life when I make the move. Our offices are based in internet city. Any advice on what package I should look for would be appreciated. Secondment to last 2-3 years

if you read this thread (and salary thread no.1, it will tell you the cost of living, including accommodation in all areas, + groceries, transport, DEWA, etc. Add your savings aspirations, and that is what you think you need.
Ask for it, and if you don't get it, seriously consider your position.
